It took 1,480 days, but the Interstate [email protected] reconstruction project in Minneapolis is finally coming to a close.
- Yes, you read that right. The $230 million, four-year makeover of the 6-mile stretch will be complete sometime late Friday.
Why it matters: The ramps from 35W northbound to Interstate 94 westbound, and from 94 eastbound to 35W southbound, have been closed since the summer of 2018. That's affected a lot of people.
- 35W carried about 200,000 cars a day prior to construction and 94 carried 243,000.
What's new: The project widened the freeway, added a transit station and improved access in and out of Lake Street.
Editor's note: This story has been corrected to show the ramp from Interstate 94 eastbound to 35W southbound has been closed.
